New Moon was one of the first songs written for The Old Silo. I wrote it quickly, without thinking too much. It doesn't really make sense in a linear or logical way. Instead, the lyrics are kind of "cubist" in the sense that they show fragments of a story from different angles. At one point I panicked and re-wrote the whole lyric so that it "made more sense." It was awful. The next day I reverted back to the original and never changed it again.
